The exposure schedule for partially coherent hologram multiplexing, in which data pages are multiplexed by multiple signal beams and a single reference beam, is investigated in detail for the case of a
phase-shifted photorefractive medium. We found that the optimum recording schedule for partially coherent multiplexing cannot be determined by the classical recording schedule theory because of time-constant errors induced by partially coherent interaction between a reference beam and self-diffraction signal beams. To overcome the issue, we derive a modified recursion equation that accounts for the time-constant errors, and we also propose a novel iterative recording-schedule correction algorism for finding the optimum solution. In the calculation with hologram multiplicity of 30 and photorefractive coupling strength of 3.0, we could successfully obtain a flat diffraction-efficiency profile after the second recursion.
